Al Lawson: 44 North Florida Restaurants Getting $8.3 Million in Federal Funds

Last week, U.S. Rep. Al Lawson, D-Fla., announced more than $8 million in federal funds for restaurants in North Florida.

Lawson announced 44 restaurants will get $8,301,133.22 from the Restaurant Revitalization Fund.

“Restaurants are essential to the vitality of our communities yet were among the businesses most impacted by the pandemic,” Lawson said. “When we passed the American Rescue Plan to help businesses and families through this crisis, we also included billions of dollars in aid specifically for restaurants. This money is keeping workers paid and ensuring more restaurants can weather this crisis and be ready to reopen once it is safe to do so. It is especially important now as the Delta variant forces more restaurants to again limit their operations.”

The Restaurant Revitalization Fund grants businesses funding according to their pandemic-related losses up to $10 million per business.
